Give the entire catalog to Rhino Records.
The latest addition to the band's acclaimed series of archival concert releases, this 6-disc collection contains all four of The Doors' performances - in their entirety - recorded in 1970 at the Felt Forum in New York City.
Recorded just a few weeks before the release of Morrison Hotel - these concerts find Jim Morrison, John Densmore, Robby Krieger, and Ray Manzarek locked in tight as they deliver smoking takes on soon-to-be-classics from their forthcoming album, including “Roadhouse Blues,” “Peace Frog,” “Ship Of Fools,” and “Maggie M'Gill.” The shows also feature a number of driving blues covers, such as Bo Diddley's “Who Do You Love,” Howlin' Wolf's “Back Door Man,” and John Lee Hooker's “Crawling King Snake.” “Those were the bluesy songs we always used to do,” Krieger says. “We probably hadn't done some of them in years, but we had resurrected them for these shows.”
Fans will be blown away by the crisp sound found on LIVE IN NEW YORK. All four shows were mixed and mastered by the band's longtime engineer, Bruce Botnick, who recorded a number of shows from The Doors' 1970 tour on multi-track tape for the Absolutely Live album. While most of the music contained on LIVE IN NEW YORK is unreleased, a few songs (and portions of songs) surfaced in 1970 on Absolutely Live and in 1997 on Box Set.
Sadly, these shows represent The Doors' final New York City performances with Morrison, who passed away July 3, 1971.
No Singles Box for me, I'm hooked on these Rhino re-issues and new archive releases. http://www.rhino.com/shop/product/the-doors-live-in-new-york
